Learning network protocols is not an easy task. We use them every day, but they have become transparent, as they are integrated in the Operating System. Its use also implies the interaction between different devices, including aspects like concurrency, noise and multi-threading. As a result, the student sees this subject as not necessary, and difficult, easily loosing his interest in the matter. This document is a summary of the work developed in an undergraduate course, where Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) based on Sun SPOTs have been used to improve the comprehension and interest of the students. In the undergraduate course Network and Communications, a Game based lab has been developed. The results show the improvements from previous years.
